My Review
Thoughts on the book: Inside Out is the third book in the Off the Map trilogy written by Lia Riley and completes Bran and Talia's story together. It  follows on from where we left off in Sideswiped. Bran is off in the Antarctic trying to stop illegal whalers and Talia is in Malawi with the Peace Corps, but not all is at it seems. Within the first few chapter Talia ends up fighting for her life and Bran rushes to her side.  Upon getting better Talia and Bran decide to head to the states so that Talia can fully recover with her family and friends around her.
In Sideswiped we were introduced to Bran's life, his world and his family and in Inside Out we are introduced to Talia's dad and his new partner Jessie. We get to head to the country where Talia is from and see her in her own habitat. It really gives us more of an insight into what makes her tick. 
I think Inside Out was the perfect ending story where we got to see both Bran and Talia work through a lot of their issues both independently and together. Talia has to deal with her OCD head on as it begins to overtake her life again and Bran must deal with watching the woman he loves go through hell and back and also dealing with his past.

Favourite quote/part:
'Why is there a patch on the wall in the living room?' I force a smile, but my insides are chilled. Is Bran punching walls while I'm gone? What the hell? Panic flares, makes it impossible to take a deep breath.
'My phone broke.'
'On the wall?'
I raise my brows. 'Um, I'm going to assume it had assistance. It's not Superphone, faster than the speed of light, right?' 

Rating: 5/5
